Virtually everything that you might need is available in Mexican Farmacias, although you will need the generic or compound name, since the proprietary names may differ. Naturally, generics are much less expensive. If you know what you need, simply ask for it. The exception is 'controlled substances' containing narcotics, which will require a prescription from a Mexican physician who specializes in pain management, etc. Not all physicians can prescribe them. If you have prescription insurance, it will not be paid directly but you will have to buy the medication and submit your claim to your own insurance company. If that is the case, the larger pharmacies in Walmart, Costco, Mega, Soriana, etc., will have computerized receipts which will show the name of the medication.
